Trust us, you want to follow these steps and e-file before the Form 2290 due date passes. I mean, you don’t want to get hit with penalties, do you?
Step 1: Sign in / Create Your Account
First of all, creating an account is always free! We never charge you to create your account, and you don’t have to pay until you transmit your return. We’ll even let you create sub-accounts for employees, accountants, or anybody else
Step 2: Enter Your Business Information
At this point, you need to enter your business information. This includes your name and your Employer Information Number (EIN), which you need to make sure you know.
Step 3: Choose Your Tax Year and First Used Month
At step 3, you enter your tax year and first used month for the vehicle(s) you are filing for.
The tax year you’ll be filing for (for this deadline) will be 2016-2017!
Step 4: Enter Your Vehicle Information
After that, you need to enter your vehicle identification number (VIN) and the taxable gross weight of the vehicle(s) you are filing for.
If you need to, you can select if your vehicle is used for any special purposes, such as for agricultural use or logging.
Note: Logging doesn’t mean you use e-logs or any other type of mileage logging system.
Step 5: IRS Payment Options
There are several payment options for you to select when you e-file IRS HVUT Form 2290. We suggest that you make sure you’re familiar with the IRS payment options available, including:
- Direct Debit or Electronic Funds Withdrawal
- Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS)
- Check or Money Order
Step 6: Summary and Audit Check
Before we transmit your 2290, we’ll check over your form to make sure it’s clear of any basic filing errors.
We can’t guarantee that you won’t be audited, but we can do our best to make sure nothing looks funky before we transmit!
Step 7: Transmit Your Return to the IRS
At this point, your return is ready to be transmitted to the IRS. Simply add your electronic signature and voila! We can transmit, and you’re done with Form 2290 Heavy Highway Vehicle Use Tax Return for the year!
Step 8: Receive Your Stamped Schedule 1
Want to know the best part? Shortly after you file, you’ll get your 2290 Schedule 1. That’s not bad!
